NRSC withdraws support from Roy Moore's Senate campaign

Alabama official uses Bible to condone sexual misconduct

Alabama official uses Bible to condone sexual misconduct

No matter what happens, Moore will remain on the ballot on December 12 since a candidate's name can not be removed within 76 days of the election, according to the office of Alabama's secretary of state.

Roy Moore has been through two campaigns for governor and two for chief justice.

On the ground in Alabama, some Republicans were willing to downplay the allegations.

On Friday, a day after news of the allegations broke, the National Republican Senatorial Committee filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to end participation in a joint fundraising committee with Moore's campaign.

The intensity of the reaction may partly reflect lingering bad feelings from the primary contest between unusual and Moore, held in late September.

Theologians and pastors, among others, expressed revulsion that Mary and Joseph would be used to counter allegations of sexual misbehavior with a minor.

Equifax executives are scheduled to take questions from analysts during a conference call on Friday at 8:30 a.m.in NY . Equifax shares dropped 1.2 percent to $107.65 at 4:47 p.m.in late NY trading after the announcement.

"There is nothing to see here", Alabama State Auditor Jim Ziegler told the Washington Examiner.

Republican divisions are deepening over how to respond to the allegations, with national GOP leaders distancing themselves from Moore and calling for him to drop out of the race while officials in Alabama have largely stood by the candidate. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter.

"The allegations might prove to be just a political ploy", Lipinsky said.

Those familiar with recent polling of the Alabama race suggest it was always going to be close despite the state's strong Republican leanings - largely because of Moore's controversial past. They did not have sexual intercourse, the Post said. "So I just wonder if it's, you know, maybe these are just the times we are in right now".

On several occasions, Moore has made controversial statements and taken positions that have cost him his job. On a second visit, he took off her shirt and trousers and removed his clothes except for his underwear before touching her over her bra and underpants, Corfman told the Post.

Under ancient norms and apparently under first century Roman and Jewish law, she said, it was apparently common for girls 12 and older to be betrothed, though practice varied by region, social class and more. Days later he took her home and removed their clothes, she said, touching her over her underwear and placing her hand on his underwear-clad genitals.

North Korean embassy official in focus at Kim Jong Nam trial
North Korea has vehemently denied accusations by South Korean and USA officials that Kim Jong Un's regime was behind the killing. They pleaded not guilty at the start of their trial on October 2 and face a mandatory death sentence if convicted.

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying", McCain tweeted.

They're all true. I wouldn't couldn't make this stuff up.

"That is all we can do, and I trust that the people of Alabama, who know my record after 40 years of public service, will vouch for my character and commitment to the rule of law".

If, however, the state party tells election officials that it wants to withdraw its nominee, or if Moore himself chose to do so, election officials would not certify any votes cast for Moore.

Judge Roy Moore said Friday that while he did date "a number of young ladies" when he returned from the military, he would have never had contact with a 14 year old. She described meeting Moore, who was then an assistant district attorney, at the courthouse in Etowah County, Ala., where he offered to watch her while her mother attended a custody hearing. He has condemned homosexuality and said he believes some USA communities are living under Islamic religious law. Of these, only Senators Capito and Shelby have denounced Moore's alleged behavior.
